Can somebody remind me why those games weren't as popular as they should have been?
In my opinion, there were several reasons :

- Poor marketing by dtp
- Dragon Age came out around the same time - people were flooding it
- Unknown setting worldwide
- Didn't quite fit into the current fashion of fantasy settings (dark, brutal, C&C, "dark & gritty" etc. )

but all in all I rather believe that it was a combination of the poor marketing with Dragon Age being "hip" at that time what ultimatively broke it.
